Most of the states are considering notifying lesser fines for traffic offences than the stiff penalties in the amended Motor Vehicles Act, barely a day after the Gujarat government announced reductions between 25 and 90%, arguing that this was needed on “humanitarian” grounds.
States like Bihar, Goa, Odisha, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Kerala and Uttarakhand have called for reduced fines and there seems to be a similar sentiment in several other states with state transport secretaries discussing their next course action in informal interactions on the newly legislated MV Act amendments.
On Wednesday, the Uttarakhand cabinet approved reductions in traffic violation penalties even as Union transport minister Nitin Gadkari said states are free to notify their own fines for traffic offences while reminding them that the intention behind the new rules and fines is to save lives.
